the view from the entryway of WDA’s ‘fatty bao’ restaurant in mumbai gives you a clear idea of where you may like to sit in the three distinct seating options that are available. choose to sit by the bar over six stools for a drink or dinner and individual placemats, giving you – as a solo diner or a one with a friend ample room to be close to all the action at the bar. the bamboo-lined bar with deep-set cove lighting sets a nice ambiance for a peaceful meal. the red and green themed bar is lined with asian character motifs, framed images, and artifacts to lightly intersperse alcohol choices with the theme of the restaurant.
